honeysuckle (Lonicera spp.; HONEYSUCKLE FAMILY [Caprifoliaceae]) Upright shrubs (to 15) or twining woody vines with papery bark, opposite entire leaves, fragrant tubular flowers, and red fruits.  Roughly one dozen species are in our flora plus several hybrids.  Several are native (mostly vines), others introduced.  Four alien bush honeysuckle species are extremely invasive and can easily dominate habitats in which they become established.  [046]
